Lung Cancer In Kentucky

The St. Elizabeth nationally recognized lung cancer screening program is reaching more people at risk, catching cancer earlier and opening the door to cutting edge treatments that lead to better survival rates.

“We started going and looking for cancer at an earlier stage and we found that if you catch lung cancer early in stage I or stage II you have up to greater than a 90% chance of curing that cancer.” – Dr. Michael Gieske

St. Elizabeth Healthcare has initiated a Lung Cancer Screening Program in an effort to catch early, non-symptomatic disease in patients who are considered high risk. The benefit of low-dose lung cancer CT screening is a reduction in lung cancer death for those who meet specific criteria. Testing is available at one of our seven ACR accredited convenient locations in Covington, Dearborn County, Edgewood, Florence, Ft. Thomas, Grant County and Hebron.
